Lanparte Black Magic CC Mattebox RIg
The Lanparte Black Magic CC Mattebox RIg is a 15mm rod shoulder-mount rig for your Blackmagic Cinema Camera or Production Camera 4K, complete with a camera cage, follow focus, matte box, and external V-Mount battery power solution. The cage comes included with a top handle, 15mm baseplate, dovetail plate that allows forward/backward adjustment on a tripod, and a Magic Arm for attaching an EVF or monitor. To complete the shoulder-mounted rig, a shoulder support with 7.9″ 15mm rods is included, which attaches to the rear of the rig using a height riser clamp, as well as the Universal Grip V2 with adjustable dual handgrips.
The cage consists of a top cheese plate, bottom cheese plate, and support arms that add 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 accessory mounting threads. It also features air vents integrated into the design to allow better airflow and prevent overheating. Access to all common camera functions, the connections, battery, and SSD slots remains unobstructed. The cage securely attaches to the baseplate via two 1/4″-20 screws.
The baseplate supports a pair of included 11.8″ 15mm rods, which allow attachment of the follow focus, matte box, handgrips, shoulder support, and V-Mount battery plate. ARRI standard rosettes on the sides of the baseplate let you attach additional accessories. The dovetail plate has 1/4″-20 and 3/8″-16 threads for attaching to a tripod. The baseplate slides onto the dovetail plates, locking in place using a side lever. The extra length of the dovetail plate lets you adjust the position of the camera rig forward or backward to help balance it on the tripod.
The top handle features a long, ergonomic design for versatile and comfortable handling. It attaches to the top of the cage via a rail, which also allows for horizontal adjustment. Additionally, the handle has a cold shoe at the front end for attaching mics and other accessories. The top of the cage provides support for a pair of included 7.9″ 15mm rods, useful for adding accessories such a wireless focus motors, or the included Magic Arm. The Magic Arm has a 1/4″-20 screw for mounting an EVF or monitor, and is adjustable vertically and horizontally.
The included matte box fits lenses with a maximum front outer diameter of 100mm. It features two rotating 4 x 4″ filter stages and incorporates a swing-away design for rapid lens changes. Removable top and side flags are also included to block unwanted light from hitting your lens. Both the Universal Grip V2 and follow focus utilize a clamping design that lets you attach them to the 15mm rods without having to remove the matte box. The follow focus features integrated A and B hard stops that let you set start/end points on DSLR lenses with continuously rotating focus rings. The follow focus features a 0.8 pitch drive gear, which can be positioned on either side of the gear box. For use with DSLR lenses that lack an integrated focus gear rings, an adjustable gear ring comes included.
The V-Mount Battery Pinch mounts to the 15mm rods and features a V-mount for attaching the included 150Wh battery. It provides DC outputs with different voltages (5, 7.2, 12, and 15V), letting you power multiple devices simultaneously from the battery. Additionally, the Battery Pinch has a built-in HDMI splitter, useful when you need to send a signal from an HDMI monitor to multiple devices. The battery itself has a D-Tap output which, with the use of the included D-Tap power cable, lets you power the Blackmagic Cinema Camera or Production Camera 4K. The battery can be recharged using the AC power adapter included with the Battery Pinch.
